9:20 am
texas rangers and dps and other resources to the border. he's a governor and over 11 years and still the governor and still fighting the war. he's not talking about the past. and so we have a guy who is doing it now and has a proven record. i spent four years as federal head of drug enforcement in mexico city and texas and arizona and i think i know where the border is and i believe he said in one year when he is president, he would secure that border. i believe him. >> i know perry, does this mean you don't think romney is serious enough about enforcing border security? >> he's a nice guy. i have known him, cain has visited and michele bachmann and mitt called me one time. but people seem to flip flop when they run for president.

>> before we get on to other stories, looking outside. the official new headquarters for the herman cain in atlanta. we are hearing that an announcement could come in the next 15 minutes. we'll monitor it closely to determine whether - he will stay in oir out. and back to immigration. the sheriff talked to us about why he believe that is rick perry is the only one to secure the borders and tackle immigration. joining us to continue our fair and balanced debate. we have the sheriff who disagrees about who is the man for the job. you think it is mitt romney. >> why do you think mitt romney is better suited to enforce security and sloww down illegal immigration. >> sheriff joe and i are good friends. we differ on this.
9:30 am
when you look at mitt romney, what he's done as governor. supported the state police in massachusetts and enforcement of the law and empowered with a 287 g program and veto-ed a bill when it came to giving instate tuition to illegals and employer sanctions. we can't have magnets that serve to draw. and now you have gingrich who is getting in the gambit and make us like we are heartless if we don't want to apply the law to these people. he's saying, we want to keep them here who have been here for sometime in america. wait a minute, we are here to enforce the law. wee are not against immigration, but we are against illegal immigration. mitt romney had a good plan.
9:31 am
and come here forer's programs and cliff and work visas, they are inviting them to stay here in america. and we do it legally and not illegally. >> romney campaign has been attacking perry who is soft on illegal immigration. perry said he would hut down the border if the first year. do you consider that not tough enough? >> he's been the governor, and why on earth would he be the first governor to encourage illegals to stay here with giving them in state tuition and people from arizona and iowa can't go to texas to guilty the same benefit. mitt romney is saying you have to earn it. all of these people who are occupy wall street thinking that obama philosophy of we owe you something.
9:32 am
>> you think he is going to detaven all of the illegals and clear up the border is a tough stance at this point? >> yes. it is not consistent with his past record and that's where a lot of candidates are saying a lot of things. i am not taking away from his job as governor in a lot of ways, but we need someone who understands the complexities of this issue but look at the cartel and fast and furious. very few candidates who understand this. mitt romney is the only one who said eric holder has to resign or be fired for this. and we need a candidate who will bring the fight to obama and stand up for america and put our about first and not shouted down like we are unamerican because we want to force the law. >> it is it a lively campaign and the debate continues in your state and one that we are
9:33 am

9:34 am
go to capitaloneom. i wonder what it could be?! what's in your wallet?
9:35 am
9:36 am
9:37 am
>> welcome back. people are standing by waiting to hear from herman cain. he is finding that his support is waning. congressman steven king of iowa cains campaign should be
9:38 am
over. he tweets. his campaign is over. i thank him as a friend and wish him well. >> it shows him polling at eight percent in iowa. this is something that we are watching. many people don't know. and there is aids saying that he will drop out and others disagree. we don't know if mrs. cain will be there for the announcement. it will happen and we'll bring it to you live when it happens. >> last year, we were in the same place when he proposed the personal extension or the pay roll tax holiday and we shouldn't be doing that because we'll be in the place of having to do it again this year. and that's where we are. >> new showdown on capitol hill and over the taxes.
9:39 am
they agree on a pay roll tax cut but disagreement is who will pay for it charlie rangel from new york. great to have you here. >> all good to be with you. >> thank you. >> this close to the holiday. the pay roll tax cut is a thing of the past. how do you plann to take it if you are suppose supporting it >> first of all, we are getting a little anonity that it is important. as you are well aware it will pass but the republicans have a problem with it and that is a problem in the past. i am not that certain they will put up enough votes. clearly you don't pay for it as the republicans have suggested by laying off people. the problem that is we is it is appointment and they don't
9:40 am
have enough money to spend. if we try to extend the tax break for the people who have a couple of dollars in the holiday season. and then on the other hand, you have the federal employees. it doesn't make economic sense and this time of year it doesn't make sense in terms of compassion. >> many are inclined to vote for the move because of the time of year. but short term it is going forward going to make things worse. so many folks are saying that the country is simply broke. >> they are legitimate things and when you find the majority in the house and minority in senate. republicans say the number one job is to not have economic growth but to get rid of the president. they have made up their minds that there is nothing that the president can do.
9:41 am
even if it is republican ideas. they will not give him this much victory for the country. everything he tries to do whether it is health care or taxes or investing in america's future or long-term projects and not just pay roll holidays, they say no, no, no, no. american people have to be able to stand up and say they will not toler eight it. we are set there to protect america and what they are trying to do to health care and social security. i hope moral and spiritual leaderships will say start to work for america and not reelection. >> there are people and small business owners who are saying that the pay roll tax holiday will not do that much to actually prived the atmosphere and get more people hired in the long-term. how do you answer that. >> you are right.
9:42 am
even though we saw a reduction in the number of people who are registered for unemployment. it is not as big as what we want. but god knows we could at least give the president credit for going in the right decision're direction. is it going to be a long-lasting boom? not knows the situation in greece and europe. we don't know. but we have to make sure that people have enough money to buy. small business people can't survive if the working class people have no money to buy. >> appreciat your insights and we'll check back with you as we get closer to the vote. i know you will have a lot to say when that happens. thank you very much. >> we are still awaiting an announcement from herman cain. expected to involve the future of his campaign. john roberts is standing by.
9:43 am
any indication at this point what herman cain might do today? >> there is no indication at this point. we have tried to read the tea leaves and everyone who is here. supporters and media. no idea what he will do. logic dictates when your campaign is in a disarray, you can't continue spectacularly since there are many reports that said more women who are ready to level accusations against him. it is up to herman cain and his wife gloria. they met for the first time last night as ginger white came out with her allegation. and we'll see if herman cain accompanies her husband on other scenarios and that he uses it as a exit thank you very much but i can't. or pause and reassess and my
9:44 am
wife and gloria are okay but we have to figure out if the campaign can go forward. they are all potential sceniarios that could unfold. he is about 10 minutes away and a short meeting with military veterans. stay tuned. we are a few minutes away from finding out what his campaign will be. >> even if he goes forward. there is a number of colleagues that said funding will be drying up. donations may not be coming fast and furious. >> oh, yes, it is beginning to dry up. not as many people are signing up to be volunteers and look at recent poll numbers in the state of iowa. where the all important caucus takes place. it is at eight percent and he was at 23 percent and the trend is downward. four-day rolling average. he went from 12 to four
9:45 am
percent. and other candidates who are in the lead but not newt gingrich whenwhere herman cain was in iowa. and he was sitting there and herman cain is on a downward trend with four weeks left to go before the caucus. it is difficult to recover from am. people are upbeat about what the candidate might say f. he is going to drop out, he will disappoint a lot of the folks welcoming them. >> there will be a lot of disappointment. herman cain supporters are hoping that doesn't portend his future of the campaign. there is music and barbecue and selling t-shirts and signing people up. there is no sense that anything is amiss. they are pumping up the crowd
9:46 am
and if he said i am suspending the campaign, it will be a deep disappointment to all of his supporters. herman cain is getting a lot of headlines. unfortunately for him, they are not the kind of publicity he wants. liz prada will weigh in, coming up next. when i inspect homes, i can't be in an allergy fog. so i get claritin clear for strong, non-drowsy relief of all my alleres like dust mold pets and pollen. looks good. thanks. i ve claritin clear.

9:49 am
9:50 am
herman cain is expected to make his much anticipated announcement and answering the questions of the hour. will he stay in the race for the presidency or drop out. liz prada is here with us as she is every week and she is going to give her perspective of whether or not the cain campaign can survive or go. the media does like the scandal particularly one like this . what do you think about the media that is lighting the fire storm. >> it is normal good afternoon by the way. he is the ultimate outsider and a warming one that is the target of the so many charges.
9:51 am
he media is having a field day with this and i must say most of the pieces that are predicting and insignulating that he's toast and going to say that today and couple of interesting pieces. richard cohen asked interesting questions this week. why, why are they gaining up for cain and not on newt gingrich? and why should cain have to take a fall and not newt gingrich? we have a record of his part? cowen makes an attempt to worry it. the gop doesn't need cain. but it certainly needs newt gingrich. if the polls are any example.
9:52 am
he's the largest surge in the polls as we go forward trying to pick the gop candidate for president. and another thing that cowen suggest that is a more logical answer. old news is not as glamorous as new, news. and newt gingrich's is old news . cain is new. one question that i find disturbing that is not raised by anybody seriously at least when i read it. what is the motive of ginger white in no one seems to have honed in on that and a few vague references of how her relationship as the story was relayed to the public on a tip. someone went to the media. who went to the media? she didn't have to go on the
9:53 am
television show as she did with abc and go through the sordid details of their alleged relationship. what is in it for her? she substaniate want money or write a book? why do it. if this is a case of a scorned woman? and why she did it. not to say it is not true but the very act of coming publicly and wrecking his campaign? >> it is an interesting point about going into the motive of these women to come forward . interesting to note when john edwards was deal his candicy. the media left it to the national enquirer to come up with the story and go with the headlines and they didn't want to pick it up until they were forced to since the inquirer was already interviewing the woman behind the scandal and
9:54 am
john edwards. >> exactly, the national enquirer has weighed in on this but no where near the edwards story which they were out on. and if anything, the mass media were writing stories about the national enquirer and what a sleeze bag it is. and doing horrible stories about john edwards. and we saw that turn around. but, justice there and the justice here. the other part is he going to blame the media if he decides throw in the towel. i am a victim and i can't take the medi scrutiny on this and still maintain that it is false? >> yes, i know. >> or does he say it is true.
9:55 am
>> it is certainly what we will check back with the cain campaign. it may be coming any time. thank you for that. and we told you we are awaiting cain's announcement and we'll have the twitter responses on the other side of the break, stay with us. we're america's natural gas
9:56 am
9:57 am
9:58 am
and here's what we did today: supported nearly 3 million steady jobs across our country... ... scientists, technicians, engineers, machinists... ... adding nearly 400 billion dollars to our economy... we're at work providing power to almost a quarter of our homes and businesses... ... and giving us cleaner rides to work and school... and tomorrow, we could do even more. cleaner, domestic, abundant and creating jobs now. we're america's natural gas. the smarter power, today. learn more at >> okay, as we've been telling you, we're awaiting
9:59 am
g.o.p. candidate herman cain's announcement. and we've been asking you, do you think that herman cain should end the run for the the presidency. and several of you, i think he'll continue the run for the white house, and win in 2012. he's the best chance to america's best chance to survive. and, i wish he wasn't forced to, but i believe he'll be lft with no choice. karen says, yes, they all can't be wrong. crystal says, no, i do not think that cain should end his run. i believe in him and feel he would make a great president. hannah adds, he needs to drop out. i don't want someone who has had sex scandals out every day possibly running the country. thanks for sharing, boy, a the lot of responses from our twitter folks and i know that those responses are going to continue to keep coming in and we're obviously, watching the developments as they unfold. we continue to monitor it from washington, as well as new york. and that's going to do it for me from this hour from washingto
